“It is 2015 and you are at a party in a New York hotel, hosted by Maxwell Star, where you should mingle and gossip about each other as freely as possible. Give away other people's secrets (those at the party and any other one's) but don't give away your own. There are tabloid reporters who are intent on getting a good story for their newspaper. There are also some members of the public who are intent on finding 'gossip' and selling the story to a tabloid from any country (as long as the 'payment' is high enough)”
Celebrity 1. Lady Gaba: you are a successful pop star married to famous Japanese singer/advertiser Kimura Takutoshi. You married him a few years ago after he left his wife and children for you. Your pop career is successful but you are worried about the future. You have gambled most of your money away while on holiday on the small island of Macao. The casino where you gambled your money is owned by footballer David Decks who you had a one year affair with. Decks has a cocaine problem and is in hiding after Interpol announced their wish to catch him. You spoke to Decks last night in a small hotel in New York and promised to 'hide' him, but you wouldn't be sad if the police caught him because he would go bankrupt and your debt might disappear.
Celebrity 2: Kimura Takutoshi: You are married to Lady Gaba. In Japan, you are a famous actor willing to work for any advertising company for the right money. In Japan you became successful with a 'boy band' called SLAP, and then as 'the face' of many products. Your Japanese fans were shocked when you began to have an affair with Lady Gaba and left your wife and children to live with her in New York; however, you married her and loved the sex, drugs and rock n' roll lifestyle. One thing: you have been worried about your wife's friendship with David Decks, owner of a casino, but you have secretly been meeting with your exwife in Japanese restaurants in New York. You miss Japan, and want to go back to clean your reputation because your parents are shamed by your exploits (they know you have been sleeping with Japanese students and that the Japanese press know – but haven't reported on because you have so many 'commercial interests').
Celebrity 3: David Decks: You are married to Victoria Slice, a former singer of 'girl band' The Slicy Sect and are a failed 'solo' pop star. You were a footballer who never achieved your full potential because of Victoria's desire to follow a fashionable life rather than a sporting one. After the 2010 World Cup you bought a casino off mainland China (Macao). It has been very successful, but you have met many businessmen who want to supply you with the best drugs – so you have began to have a drug problem and your weight has ballooned. You don't look anything like the sportsman you were five years ago. Victoria has been rather unhappy about your change and has started to run her own fashion business. She ignores you and you are confused about it. Last week after you flew to England to work on an English television show on football, the TV company 'supplied' a Spanish 'model' to 'entertain' you. You enjoyed it, but a member of the paparazzi saw you kissing her. Does Victoria know? In London, a few years ago you met Michael Jackson on the day before he died and know 'the truth' about him.
Celebrity 4: Victoria Deck: You are married to David Decks, a former footballer and now casino owner. You were a pop singer: pretty but never respected by the public except for David, who you had two children with. After your 'pop' career failed and David retired from football, you lived at your husbands casino in Macao. However, a man called Thom Bruise kept supplying you with drugs, and kept boring you with invented religions like Sci-fictionology. You slept with him though, after you discovered that he starred in your favourite film, Stop Gun. You would have continued to have an affair with him except for his obsession with religion. You still think about him though because your husband has ballooned into an overweight cocaine addict who is not interested in helping you in your career as the owner of your fashion business, 'Social Exhibitionist'. A tabloid reporter has texted you to tell you that they have pictures of your husband, naked, with a beautiful Spanish model and that they will use the story in 2016 unless you help them get a bigger story. You are wondering whether he could be 'bumped off'...
Celebrity 5: Thom Bruise: You are an actor married to a woman in the same religious sect as you: Sci-fictionology, but you have a large number of 'love interests' on 'both side of the fence'. Since you made Stop Gun in the 1980s you became one of Holy-Wood's top stars; but are unhappy because of addictions to sex, religion and drugs. Now you are in New York to shoot a movie with Johnny Kitarolta, an American actor made famous in 1977 with the movie, 'Peace'. You first knew him after he 'took advantage of you' in a hotel room in 1983 before you were famous. Nobody knows about this, but photo's of you in an 'uncompromising position' do exist: you are worried that he will use them against you. Your current love, however, is the wife of David Becks, Victoria Becks, who you had a short affair with last year. You want to get information about him to give to the paparazzi to make his life difficult. You would do anything to start afresh with Victoria, but you have an addiction to spending time with friends from your religion and those who feed your addictions.
Celebrity 6 - Kentaro Honda. You are a footballer who is in New York on a sponsorship visit. You were a successful footballer in your native Japan and in Dutch and Russian leagues. In Japan, your popularity is sky high – your performances in World Cups have been to the highest level and the public love you. However, there is one thing which the Japanese public do not know – you have been having an affair with Kimura Takatoshi's wife since you were at school – his children are your children. You know that the advertiser will try to win back his wife but want to get information about how he has been leading a bad life. Your footballing friends in Japan have also come across a picture of former footballer 'David Becks' with a Spanish model. If this picture gets out, then it will cause all kinds of problems for him. What will you do? A friend of yours in Japan is a Johnny Kitarolta fan and has seen a photograph of him with Thom Bruise in 1983: the pictures are valuable and you often jokingly talk about them when drinking with friends.
